Tom Pearson Author Biography
Before retiring a couple of years ago at the age of fifty-nine, I was an executive in the water industry. I hold a degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in civil engineering. I have had rewarding career providing safe drinking water to the citizens of Winnipeg, as well as serving on the boards of the American Water Works Association and the Water Research Foundation. I am proud to have been one of the founding directors of Water for People Canada, a charitable organization dedicated to raising funds and constructing safe water supplies in developing countries. Before this book, my writing products were limited to articles in trade journals, conference publications, lectures and a wide array of reports.
But these things in no way define me. They are ancillary to most important undertaking in my life thus far; my role as caregiver to my late wife Lynne. Lynne was diagnosed with early on-set Alzheimer’s disease and it was my privilege to care for her from the time that she became ill at age 50 until her passing at age 63 in 2011. This front-line perspective has allowed me to chronicle our lives from inception until Lynne’s passing and beyond.
I hope that Lynne's story will inspire you and that in sharing our journey, you find a bit of hope. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and would love to hear your commentary on the book.
